Asbestos training plummets during Coronavirus pandemic

This is worrying.  The UK Asbestos Training Association (UKATA) has announced that the level of asbestos training in the construction industry has dropped to a 5-year low.

Prior to the Coronavirus crisis, an average of 18,000 workers a month completed asbestos training. Over the last six months (March-August), an average of 6,000 workers a month undertook asbestos training delivered by UKATA-approved training providers, a fall of more than 66%.

As a reminder, more than 5,000 people a year die in the UK from asbestos-related diseases and the number continues to rise.

As a company, we do everything we can to promote the awareness of asbestos and the importance of safe management and working practices alongside sound asbestos software (eg Alpha Tracker).  We hope that this drop in the level of training proves to be a "blip" and that it returns to normal throughout the rest of 2020.
